Re: Mcintosh MC-60 distortion problem

Two things come to mind:

Are you overdriving the amp? Using a CD player direct with controls all the way up for example? Notch the input level controls back a bit if so.

Has this unit been refurbished? Power supply capacitors are suspect if not. Is it both amps or just one?.. have you tried another source altogether to eliminate the source of distortion further up?.. Other capacitors may be passing dc causing this too if they have not be checked for leakage they should be..

A good tech will send a signal through the amp and look at the B+ too to sort it out quickly.
